Mascot Integra is a complete solution for managing and automating proteomics research. It will scale to the largest projects, yet has a very affordable entry level, making it a practical choice for laboratories of all sizes.
Mascot Integra was developed in collaboration with LabVantage Solutions Inc., building on their 20+ years of LIMS knowledge and experience. This collaboration also enables Mascot Integra functionality to be added to an enterprise-wide LabVantage Sapphire™ LIMS.
Sample and workflow management
Mascot Integra supports all of the experimental protocols used in proteomics research, including 1D gels, 2D gels, multi-dimensional chromatography, and both on-line and off-line mass spectrometry.
An intuitive drag & drop interface is used to model the experimental workflow. Experiments and tasks can be saved as templates to avoid the need to key in information repeatedly.
Complex instruments, such as mass spectrometers, robotics, and chromatographs, invariably have dedicated data systems. Mascot Integra doesn't attempt to duplicate or replace the functionality of the instrument data system. It simply makes data exchange as flexible and simple as possible.
Automated processing and searching
Mascot Daemon clients are used to automate local processing of raw mass spectrometry data into optimized peak lists. The preferred processing software is Mascot Distiller, which provides a uniform interface to all of the popular binary file formats. Using Mascot Integra, the Mascot Daemon clients can be monitored and controlled from a remote web browser.
Data mining and reporting
The way in which information is parsed from the search results and stored in the tables of the Mascot Integra database is critical. As the developers of Mascot, we have a unique understanding of how best to structure the information so as to provide total flexibility in querying and reporting the results.
Mascot Integra has a true multi-tier architecture. All of its functionality is accessed through a standard web browser.
